Anti-Oxidants

What are Anti-Oxidants?

Antioxidants are an important component of a skincare routine as they help to protect the skin from damage caused by environmental stressors such as UV radiation, pollution, and toxins. Antioxidants work by neutralising free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to premature ageing, wrinkles, and other skin issues.

Some common antioxidants used in skincare include vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea extract, and resveratrol. These ingredients can be found in a range of skincare products, including serums, moisturisers, and face masks.

Why do you use anti-oxidants in skincare?

Some of the benefits of using antioxidants in skincare include:

  1. Protection against environmental stressors: Antioxidants can help to protect the skin from damage caused by UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental stressors.

  2. Anti-ageing: Antioxidants can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by neutralising free radicals and promoting collagen production.

  3. Brightening: Antioxidants can help to brighten the skin by reducing hyperpigmentation and promoting a more even skin tone.

  4. Soothing: Antioxidants can have a soothing effect on the skin, helping to reduce inflammation and redness.

  5. Regenerating: Antioxidants can promote cell regeneration, helping to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy.

 

What skin types benefit the most from anti-oxidants?

All skin types can benefit from antioxidants in skincare, but some skin types may see greater benefits than others:

  1. Ageing skin: Antioxidants can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote collagen production, making them particularly beneficial for ageing skin.

  2. Acne-prone skin: Antioxidants can have a soothing effect on the skin and help to reduce inflammation, making them beneficial for acne-prone skin.

  3. Dry skin: Antioxidants can help hydrate and moisturise the skin, making them beneficial for dry skin.

  4. Sensitive skin: Antioxidants can have a calming effect on the skin and help to reduce redness and irritation, making them beneficial for sensitive skin.

  5. Dull skin: Antioxidants can help to brighten the skin and promote a more even skin tone, making them beneficial for dull, lacklustre skin.
